Terry Wilson looks ahead to 2020, shares the latest on his rehab
Sometimes there’s a silver lining when it comes to injuries. Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson seems to have found one with his own injury.
Because of multiple injuries at quarterback, the Wildcats have been forced to use former wide receiver Lynn Bowden behind center for a good portion of the season. That’s led to Kentucky revamping its offense geared more towards the running game and away from attacking through the air.
Wilson says the new plays and run schemes the team has developed because it needed to produce without a passing quarterback will help the offense next season.
“Adding some of those run games, run schemes, to the game is going to be powerful, and just stacking the passing game on top of it, I feel like we’ll be untouchable,” Wilson said in an interview with UK Sports Network.
“I’m really excited about. I just can’t wait to get back out there, get on the field, be with my team, and just go have fun.”
Wilson has been out with a torn patellar tendon in his left knee since Week 2. Without him, Kentucky has posted a 3-5 record.
The quarterback added in his interview that he is expected to make a full recovery and be ready to go in 2020. Last season, he posted 1,889 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions with 547 rushing yards and four additional scores on the ground.
